Personal data and data processing

Personal data means any information relating to an identified or identifiable natural person (‘data subject’). These are for example names, email addresses, IP-addresses or phone numbers. Otherwise, information that cannot be attributed to an identified or identifiable natural person is not personal data, such as the number of visitants of a website.
Data processing means any operation, which is performed on personal data whether or not by automated means (such as collection, recording, organisation, structuring, storage, adaptation or alteration, retrieval, consultation, use, disclosure by transmission, dissemination or otherwise making available, alignment or combination, restriction, erasure or destruction).

Job applications

Via email, you can electronically transmit job applications to us. Within our organisation, strictly only authorised employees who need to participate in the selection procedure have access to the applicant data, such as employees from the HR department, the corresponding  managers from specialist divisions or works council or managers from our headquarters (ARI-Armaturen  Albert Richter GmbH & Co. KG, Mergelheide 56-60, 33758 Schloss Holte-Stukenbrock, Germany). Your personal data will not be transferred to other persons or to third parties without your express consent.
Data protection cannot be ensured entirely when a non-encrypted email is used. We recommend that you encrypt at least the enclosures of your application email. You are generally free to use alternative ways of submission, i.e. via mail.

Google Analytics

Our website uses Google Analytics, a web analytics service provided by Google Inc. (1600 Amphitheatre Parkway Mountain View, CA 94043-1351, USA, hereinafter “Google”). By the use of Cookies (see above), the user behaviour is analysed in order to optimize the website (i.e. number of accesses to websites, average resting time, referral-URL, number of clicks, etc.) by using a “count-pixel". Your use of the website is usually transferred to a Google server in the US and stored there. Due to the activation of IP-anonymization on our website, your IP address will be truncated by Google within Member States of the European Union or other parties adhering to the EEA Agreement. By its truncation, the personal reference of the IP address lapses. The transmission of the full IP address to a Google server in the US and its truncation there will only occur in exceptional cases. On behalf of the Controller, Google will use this information to evaluate your use of the website, compiling reports on website activity and providing other website and internet-related services to the website operator. It is understood that the IP address sent by your browser to Google Analytics cannot be merged with other Google data. You may refuse the use of Cookies for the future by selecting the appropriate setting on your browser, as well as erase cookies already set, but we must point out that the full functionality of our website may potentially be unavailable in this case.
